    We went on the Museumboat trip, It is one hour long and well worth it, esp. because you get to see the boat houses from the water level!

    Amsterdam is a city full of canals, so one of the best way to see it is by taking a canal boat tour. There are numerous companies that offer boat tours throughout the city.

    If you are in A-dam you should see it from the water. Canal boat trips are not expensive but very interesting to get the picture of the city.

    Take a Canal Boat Ride

    by seagoingJLW Written Jul 16, 2005

    It should be great, just don't do it in the rain as we did. We couldn't get many photos, although we did manage to get a few.

    I joined the canal boat tour. The day pass costed 16 euro (valid till 12 noon nex day!). The canal boat will travel around the city, so you could just hop on and off to the places you want to visit!

    During the last meeting with Dr. Firas and Sachara in Dec.2004 we took a boattour, just accross the Central Station.
    The tour lasted about 1 hour. Its nice and comfortable and not 2 expensive.

    The best I could do was to get five bridges fitted into my pic. It is absolutely amazing to see this site for real.

    Count the crossings

    You must take a canal cruise in Amsterdam. It's the best way to see the city from it's claim to fame - the canals!

    One afternoon we decided to take a boat tour through the canals. It was really nice & relaxing, and I recommend it as a way to see the city through the canals.

    Taking a canall cruise is very relexing and enjoyable. I am told that you suppose to see seven bridges all aligned in a row from this shot. I apologize for the poor quality of scanning.
